Biden's ‘America Last’ Policy at Work

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 1/9/2024 2:50:25 PM

While considering the bumbling joke that currently occupies the Bully Pulpit's "America Last" policy, ponder what he wrote in 2019: "By nearly every measure, the credibility and influence of the United States in the world have diminished since President Barack Obama and I left office on January 20, 2017. President Donald Trump has belittled, undermined, and in some cases abandoned U.S. allies and partners. He has turned on our own... troops. He has emboldened our adversaries and squandered our leverage to contend with national security challenges from North Korea to Iran, from Syria to Afghanistan to Venezuela..." Ironic, isn't it?

Always nice to see a democrat willing to tell it like it is. Of course, the rest of them will just ignore this. I know there's a special place in hell waiting for Joe Biden. It's unfortunate that he probably won't get what he's due in this life.

#1, what Democrat? Warren Beatty? This is not the actor, but a conservative writer with the same name.

I had a feeling that the author of this article was not the actor Warren Beatty! Found this on American Thinker: "Dr. Warren Beatty (not the liberal actor) earned a Ph.D. in quantitative management and statistics from Florida State University. He was a (very conservative) professor of quantitative management specializing in using statistics to assist/support decisionmaking. He has been a consultant to many small businesses and is now retired. Dr. Beatty is a veteran who served in the U.S. Army for 22 years. He blogs at" Doh!

X CEO Elon Musk is taking a public stand for stricter U.S. voting laws, calling for mandatory in-person voting requiring identification across all 50 states in multiple comments on his social media site. The tech mogul has recently made multiple posts on the matter, writing on Monday that it is “insane” to be able to vote without providing official identification. “In the USA, you don’t need [a] government-issued ID to vote, and you can mail in your ballot,” he wrote. “This is insane.” (X) After being questioned on what could be done to fix the insanity, Musk said voting should work like purchasing alcohol. “We should require government ID and

Property developer Mark, 69, was dapperly dressed on top against the cold as he headed out of his New York City home on Wednesday. It was the first time he has been pictured since the days following Epstein's August 2019 jailhouse suicide as the pedophile awaited trial on charges for his sex ring. Sporting a goatee beard and mustache, the younger sibling looked snug in a black and white patterned scarf, trilby hat and puffed jacket as he first dumped the trash.

Palm Beach, Florida — Former President Donald Trump, the 2024 GOP frontrunner for president, told Breitbart News exclusively that Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco is the person who is actually pulling the strings at the Department of Justice (DOJ), not Attorney General Merrick Garland. While expanding on his earlier point about how Democrat President Joe Biden is “surrounded by vicious people,” Trump noted that Monaco seems to be the person really in charge at the Justice Department and that Garland is just a figurehead. “Lisa Monaco, she’s really running the Justice Department, rather viciously and rather illegally, and that will be found out over the next year and a half, I predict,”

Republicans have voted to recommend Hunter Biden officially be held in contempt of Congress for refusing to sit for a closed-door deposition as part of their impeachment investigation into his father Joe. The House Judiciary Committee was first to vote to approve the contempt resolution 23-14 along party lines, teeing up a full floor vote as early as next week. If that gets cleared, Hunter's case would be referred to the Biden-led Department of Justice for prosecution and he could face up to a year in prison if convicted.

Donald Trump won’t deliver his own closing statement at his New York civil fraud trial after all — after the judge said he needed to stick to “relevant, material facts.” Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron emailed Trump attorney Christopher Kise Wednesday saying he was assuming the 77-year-old former president wouldn’t agree to the “lawful limits” and “therefore, he will not be speaking in court tomorrow.” Kise first notified the judge in a January 4 email that after the lawyers give their arguments in the $370 million case on Thursday, “President Trump plans to present argument at closing as well,” court records show.

That would normally elicit anxiety, but mostly I’m feeling hopeless. The election is less than a year away, and Joe Biden’s approval rating has sunk to its lowest level yet, clocking in at a paltry 38%, according to a recent Washington Post average of 17 different polls. Biden’s unblinking support for Israel and unwillingness to demand a ceasefire has made dear Uncle Joe appear to many as just another callous politician, numb to Palestinian suffering.

Carville said, “Moderates, do they show up? If so, it probably helps Haley. More than 60,000 moved to the Des Moines suburbs since the 2016 race. Right? They’re not all Republicans. But do those that are Republicans show up? What will we see the suburbs around Cedar Falls, around Dubuque? The flip side is across the top up here, across the bottom down here, those are the evangelical rural counties that Ted Cruz beat Donald Trump in 2016. Trump is expected to run it up there.
